SP 12/51, f.11.2. This is an extract
from a list of eight people whipped as vagabonds at Higham Ferrers,
Northamptonshire, in 1569. All of them were then given "passports"
so they could travel to their home parish without being arrested again.
As you read these
four sources, look for:
1. What seems to be the government attitude to these poor people?
2. What is the government doing to them?
In Source 3, what does the government think about these people? Taking
each group in turn, do you think all these people were a danger to
law and order? Note from the heading to Section III what is to be
done with them.
Put some of the examples you have found
from these Sources into your Gallery Worksheet.
